On Thursday 14th we will be enjoying our Christmas lunch! A slip has been sent home with the children – it would really help the kitchen if you could return this as soon as possible if your child would like…
The Book Fair will be on from Wednesday 14th November to Monday 19th November, from 3.15 to 3.45 in the Lower Hall. The Book Fair generates a lot of free books for each class, chosen by the children themselves, so it is well worth supporting. In order to keep the Fair from being too crowded, each phase has its own night:
- Early Years – Wednesday 14th
- Key Stage One – Thursday 15th
- Year 3/4 – Friday 16th
- Year 5/6 – Monday 19th
It will be great to see you there!
On Friday 26th October we will again be having a Harry Potter themed non-uniform day in memory of Jenny Baldock who sadly passed away 2 years ago.
All pupils are invited to come into school dressed as a character from Harry Potter- Jenny was a big fan so we decided that this was a fitting tribute to her. Pupils are asked to bring in £1 donation which will go towards redeveloping the John Lally garden at school.
At 1.15pm on Friday 26th October pupils from Key Stage 1 and 2 will be going on a walk to remember our former colleague and friend. We will all be walking up to Millennium Bridge and back.
We need parent/carer volunteers to come along for the walk. If you can come along at please see your class teacher.
Thank you for your support.
Jo Heyes and Fishergate School Council
Thank you to everyone who nominated themselves to be on the School Council this year. As always the results were very close and when they were announced in Friday’s celebration assembly, the response to those who had been successful was very supportive.
Every class in Key Stage 1 and 2 has one School Council member. They will work hard to ensure that all your ideas are listened to and will help to make the school an even better place to be.
Friends of Fishergate are pleased to announce that the Autumn term brings the return to the lower hall of the fabulous Fishergate cake sale! Year 1/2 will be getting the baking and fundraising ball rolling on the 5th October so we’d really appreciate if parents and carers of children in the year one and year two classes could bring a contribution (no nuts please!) on that day – or lend a hand with the selling!
The change is pupils will now return to school on Monday 29th April, and the training day will now be on Monday 22nd July 2019. You can also find the term dates for 2017-2018, 2018-2019 and the provisional term dates for 2019-2020* on our terms dates page.
*Please note that the 2019-2020 term dates are the recommended term dates provided by City of York Council for schools in the City of York area; as usual, all schools will also be closed to pupils for a further 5 School Training/Professional Development Days in 2019-2020 and we will inform parents and carers of these training dates next year.
We would like to invite parents of children who will be moving into Key Stage 1 in September to our welcome meeting. You will have the opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher and ask any questions you may have…
